Richard Belzer "Hit List"
Monday, May 6, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Richard Belzer, familiar to most as Detective John Munch from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, will discuss his new book "Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination" co-authored with David Wayne.
Richard Belzer and David Wayne are back to set the record straight after "Dead Wrong." This time they’re going to uncover the truth about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination. For decades, government pundits have dismissed these “coincidental” deaths, even regarding them as “myths” as “urban legends.”
Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these ‘coincidences’. After all, events don’t “consult the odds” prior to happening; they simplyhappen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents. Others clearly seemed noteworthy; witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously. "Hit List" is an examination of the evidence of each case, leading to (necessarily) different conclusions.
Richard Belzer is a stand-up comedian, actor and author. He is currently cast and best known for his role as John Munch on the hit NBC show, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He has written such books as "UFOs, JFK, and Elvis" (2000), and the novels "I Am Not a Cop!" (2009) and "I Am Not a Psychic!" (2010).
This event is a fundraiser for the National Press Club Journalism Institute.
